Search and rescue crews were searching for Traish after his kayak flipped on Lake Milton near Mahoning Bridge on Saturday. According to the Milton Twp. fire chief, two kayakers flipped around 1 p.m. Saturday. Swimming, the woman made it to shore while the man did not. He also said the kayak was a rental.
The search turned into a recovery operation Saturday evening.
